$135,000 Gold and Diamond Covered BB-8 Droid

Some lucky Jawa is going to find this BB-8 droid be all set for retirement. Disney, the owner of Star Wars, and Kay Jewelers made this custom 4.5-inch tall model of the droid. It rolls in style with 18 carat gold and about 18 carats of diamonds. Building it took Kay Jewelers 600 hours of work.

The droid will be on display at the Force 4 Fashion show in New York City. Disney will auction it off for charity to benefit St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. You can see more photos of it at Glamour.

Can't get the image out of my head of a BB8 rolling through "Bantha-poo" spreading it over the wohle lower ball segment, while the "head section" creates a bow wave while plowing through the poo layer...
Now i have this image with a diamond and gold covered version of the BB8...
But i had to admit that i also wasn't able to understand the design principle of old R2D2, too...
